another weekend... in the gym #5


FOOD

This week we treated Mum to dinner at Fennel for mothering Sunday. The food was perfect and I managed to choose fairly healthy options (apart from the dessert and cocktails). I tried to cook in big batches that would last a couple of days so did most of my meal prep on my day off. Tuesday and Wednesday we had spaghetti bolognaise made with turkey mince and spelt pasta, Thursday was my fave poached eggs and avocado on rye toast, then on Friday I cooked a Kashmiri chicken and yoghurt curry (from James Duigan's Clean and Lean Diet Cookbook) served with quinoa. It lasted us til Saturday night too which meant a relaxing/lazy evening to end the week! You may have already seen my sweet potato brownie recipe that I made earlier in the week too. What have you been cooking?


EXERCISE

Monday - Slept in for boxercise! Made it to metafit at night but got mad at myself cause my back was hurting and I didn't put in as much effort as I should of.
Tuesday - My day off work! Went to circuits in the morning, spent the whole day cooking and then went to kettlebells in the evening.
Wednesday - Debated between running and the gym, ended up doing a 25min run along the beach after work.
Thursday - Did the hardest metafit class ever at 7am. After Monday's crap attempt I pushed myself as hard as possible and have never dripped so much sweat in my life. Also did "Pure sports" at EPIC in the evening.
Friday - Didn't have much time as we had a meeting after work but I squeezed in half an hour of upper body weight training in the gym. My back's still feeling it now!
Saturday - Rest day. Got massively jealous of everyone out running or heading to kettlebells in the morning, while I was heading to work!
Sunday - Rest day.



On Sunday I met up with the gorgeous Anastasia from Natbee's Fashion for a bit of lunch and a good yap at Aberdeen's Contour Cafe. It's the first time I've been and we ended up staying for a couple of hours. I loved the decor, friendly service and tasty sandwiches! I'd recommend a visit :)
